December 10, 2018
A touching biopic with a timely universal message about brotherhood and tolerance.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/4
December 9, 2018
Though breezily entertaining, this cinematic vehicle also lurches into and out of the usual racial potholes, making its song of the South--and North--catch in the throat.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
December 8, 2018
Farrelly strikes the perfect balance between platonic rom-com and social commentary and delivers a film that elevates itself above the genre's tired conventions.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
December 7, 2018
...applies a light touch and precision...dealing with racial prejudice, has sizeable relevance in today's market.
Full Review | Original Score: 17/20
December 7, 2018
Much like its main characters, the film evolves as it goes and turns into something both highly entertaining and heartfelt. (Full Content Review for Parents - Profanity, Violence, etc. - also Available)
December 6, 2018
Call this actors' duet sentimental and simplistic at your own peril. Green Book may well move you, possibly to tears, at the thought of real social change and kindness (at a time when we need it badly).
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
December 6, 2018
Sometimes it's OK to cooperate with a movie. Just sit back and enjoy the journey guilt free.
December 6, 2018
The story enlightens with humor as well as pathos if somewhat one-sided.
December 6, 2018
Taking advantage of an established and successful cinematic model, Farrelly builds a nice comedy that works wonders. [Full review in Spanish]
December 6, 2018
The interaction between the two veterans is instant magic -- a chemistry that feels like these actors have been friends for many, many years. It's that chemistry that really fuels Green Book.
Full Review | Original Score: B
December 6, 2018
More slight than sobering, this is a charming, deftly performed piece of work.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
December 5, 2018
A pleasant, humorous movie, affable but extremely shallow. A well-intentioned but rather clueless feel-good effort.
Full Review | Original Score: B-
December 5, 2018
[A] throwback ... driven by the immense talent of its lead performers ... thoughtful and funny and heartbreaking; a hell of a compelling and emotionally engaging story.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/5
December 5, 2018
As Dr. Don Shirley, Mahershala Ali embodies the inflexible gravity of his self-image.
December 5, 2018
The movie glides by on cruise control, thanks to its charismatic stars... Together, they make this a trip worth taking.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
December 4, 2018
Green Book might not ever go too far into the darkest implications of racism. It does, however, offer a hopeful message by showing how the right circumstances can cause individuals to challenge their own prejudices.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4
December 4, 2018
It, like the many movies before it about the black-white relations of generations past, will not likely solve the problems of modern racism, but it's still an important reminder that we can always learn new things about and from one another.
December 4, 2018
Peter Farrelly has made a film that feels like a perfectly sanded piece of wood...This isn't a bad movie. It's a nice movie, but I'm struggling with whether or not it's a good movie.
December 4, 2018
Peter Farrelly's film is far more endearing, precise, and tricky than its conventional racial scenario leads one to expect.
December 3, 2018
Initially, the film seems doomed to be an annoying Driving Miss Daisy spin on The Odd Couple. But the stars are far too good for that...
